Let's check out what Jacobb "yay" Whiteaker from OpTic Gaming has been using to establish his name in the esports scene!
Ever since yay joined the current OpTic Gaming roster (formerly known as Team Envy), the Valorant scene has never been the same again. Have a look at the diabolical setup of one of NA Valorant's biggest stars today.
OpTic yay: Gear
Before we get into yay's in-game settings, let's check out the hardware he uses!
|Mouse||Logitech G Pro X Superlight|
|Keyboard||Logitech G915 TKL|
|Mousepad||Artisan Hayate Otsu|
A little fun fact — yay is using the same mouse as zeek from Acend!
OpTic yay: Video Settings
Okay, let's move on to his in-game setup and start with the video settings. Most pro players go for super low settings and a lower resolution to gain more FPS, but yay is taking a slightly different approach.
It's worth mentioning that yay is using Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090, which helps him maintain a good FPS value despite not having the lowest settings.
OpTic yay: Keyboard & Mouse Settings
Usually, pro players just change one or two binds for their preferences and the rest is default. However, some of yay's keybinds are fascinating:
|Jump||Mouse Wheel Down|
|Ability 3||Mouse 5|
Having a jump on "Mouse Wheel Down" makes it easier for yay to bunny hop, and as he often plays movement-based Agents, this is pretty important.
OpTic yay: Crosshair
yay's crosshair is a pretty standard one, but in red. What crosshair color would you expect from the guy they call "El Diablo"?
|Inner Lines||1 / 3 / 2 / 2|
